 First Thursday Documentary Film

BROKEN ON ALL SIDES:
Race, Mass incarceration
&
New visions for Criminal Justice in the US

This compelling documentary shows how the war on drugs  and racial inequities within our criminal justice system  have led to mass incarceration of people of color.  The documentary centers around the theory put forward by Michelle Alexander (who appears in the movie)that mass incarceration has become The New Jim Crow. This documentary aims to answer questions and provoke questions on an issue walled off from the public’s scrutiny.

There will be discussion after the screening.
